I love Mary Pickford, and I wish there were more fimls with her available here. They all should be in a Public Domain by now, at least pre-1923 ones. This movie is below average, and the sound is simply horrible! It's not music, it is some unbearable noise! I even had to mute it. In short - don't expect much, but Mary herself is always worth watching. She was beautiful and a great actress, whatever some half-wits say.

About the mending of nets.
This is a nice silent movie from 1912. Interestingly, there is more to it than one might suspect at a first glance and I want to avoid to go into detail here, because it would take away some of the magic of the story. Just take a moment at the end and let the impressions past...
I watched the .ogv-version and the quality is good, but the sound could have been better.
